Student accommodation provider UNITE opens its doors to the public for the Edinburgh Festival


Those planning a trip to the Edinburgh Festival this year will have an alternative to pricey hotels as Edinburgh student accommodation provider UNITE is offering en-suite rooms from £35 per night.

With hotel rooms getting booked up months in advance, UNITE is aiming to provide an alternative for festival goers, by making rooms available in three different properties across the city over the summer.

A far cry from the traditional image of grotty student digs, UNITE's properties combine stylish living with great city centre locations, so guests will be at the heart of the festival action. A choice of accommodation is also on offer, from Edinburgh studio apartments to en-suite rooms in shared flats. All accommodation is self-catered giving you the flexibility to eat in or eat out.

The three properties available for summer lettings are:

  •     McDonald Road, EH7 4GT - just off Leith Walk, this property is close to Holyrood Park which this year will host the Edinburg Festival Cavalcade
  •     Portsburgh Court, EH3 9DH - situated in Lady Lawson Street this property near to Princes Street Gardens, home to the Ross Theatre where the Scottish Chamber Orchestra play each year
  •     James Craig Court, EH1 3BA - this property can't be beaten for its location in the very heart of the city centre close to all of the main attractions that the festival has to offer

Nathan Goddard, Sales and Marketing Director at UNITE said: "It can be tough to find quality, affordable student accommodation in Edinburgh for the festival but with students heading home for the summer, UNITE has plenty of space. We are delighted to be able to offer fans of The Fringe an alternative place to stay."

The minimum stay is two nights and there are deals available for those wishing to stay over longer periods. Members of the public can place bookings for this summer by calling 0141 353 7417.
